Causes of an Itchy Scalp


Dandruff causes are complex, and research is ongoing. Causes range from seborrheic dermatitis to scaly patches that cause visible flakes and other skin flare-ups. Either way, this itchiness can cause scratching that will disturb your night.

One common misconception is that dandruff is caused by poor hygiene. However, this is not the case. Special shampoos are available to help alleviate the problem. But a 100% mulberry silk pillowcase may help ease your suffering. This is because the natural proteins in silk can help soothe scalp itch, allowing you to fall asleep faster.

A little shampoo in the hair and on the scalp can cause itchy, flaky skin irritation. Therefore, it is important that you rinse it out well. Allergies to certain ingredients can also be a cause of itchy skin. Rinse, rinse, rinse and repeat the process to relieve itchy scalp.

Other ways to relieve an itchy scalp at night include natural remedies such as tea tree oil, coconut oil or peppermint oil. Once you have the problem under control, consider using a silk pillowcase to protect your hair while you sleep. Silk pillowcases are gentle on your hair and help keep it healthy.




Hives are itchy, red bumps that appear on the skin. They can be caused by allergies and made worse by certain factors. If you are prone to hives, it may be helpful to use a hypoallergenic pillowcase to reduce their appearance. Remember that hives can come and go and are not always present.

Other hives that come and go on their own can be relieved with home remedies such as a bath in colloidal oatmeal. It is also important to keep your head cool at night. A silk pillowcase can help with this, as it is breathable and keeps you cool and comfortable. These pillowcases can also relieve itchy scalp. Maintaining proper skin temperature is important for treating hives.


In about half of the people who suffer from plaque psoriasis, the itching on the scalp breaks out and leads to psoriasis on the scalp. This scalp itching and skin irritation can significantly disturb your sleep. There are medicated shampoos and other treatments that you can get without a prescription.


For relief, it is also important that you keep your body temperature under control. So sleep on a breathable and cooling pillowcase, such as a silk pillowcase, as heat can trigger itching.
